Is It Better to Have a Great Teacher or a Small Class? - The Atlantic

Is It Better to Have a Great Teacher or a Small Class? - The Atlantic | College Music and Economics Programs | Scoop.it

"When it comes to student success, “smaller is better” has been the conventional wisdom on class size, despite a less-than-persuasive body of research. But what if that concept were turned on its head, with more students per classroom – provided they’re being taught by the most effective teachers?"

Daniel's insight:

This is fairly interesting to me because I have been looking at schools wih smaller class sizes.  It is interesting to hear that the large classes could be just as effective if they are taught by the right person.  The problem with this is that a large portion of the time at a large university in a class with 500 people the TA or TAs will teach the class.  This is not neccessarily a bad thing, but with a class so large it would make it hard to get individual help if one needed it.  In a class with only 20 people it would be much easier to recieve extra help from the professor because they would have far less students and theoretically more time that they would be avaliable.  I think I am still more interested in take the route with smaller class sizes rather than the larger in order to get a more personal approach with my college education.

Does Music Makes You Smarter »Infographic -  Online College Search | College Music and Economics Programs | Scoop.it

"Studies show that music has a strong effect on your mood levels and emotions, and also on how you think and your general intelligence. The music you listen to can have a profound effect on your test scores and your ability to quickly process information. And if you’ve ever played an instrument, studies show that you’re already ahead of the curve. Playing an instrument is a great way to test out your creative thinking and push your brain to process information in a new way. The following infographic takes a look at the notion that whether you’re listening or playing, a little music can go a long way."

Daniel's insight:

I find this to be a very intersting piece of information.  I have seen almost everywhere that I have been looking that music education and playing music regularly is a good thing.  It has the ability to effect our emotions and mood levels and can be a very powerful thing.  It can even effect how we think.  It activates the creativity in our brain and pushes us to new heights both creatively and cognitively.  I see this as a great reason to continue my study of music in college.  I think that a music education and just music in general is a very valuable thing.  Because I have seen things like this and experienced it first hand for myself,  I will be continuing my studies into college and beyond.  This also shows me that it is great to study even if I do not plan in majoring in it because just the act of making music engages the brain.  I do not need to be a music major to do that and this has helped me to realize that the music minor program might be right for me so that I can still participate in it while getting another degree instead of focsing on music full time.
